Tulane University offers simulator-based trading training

A.B. Freeman school deploys Thomson Reuters’ and Trading Technologies International’s software.

A new trading simulator is being built at the A. B. Freeman school of business at Tulane University, New Orleans. The initiative is also backed by CME Group and the Energy Management Institute. As from this fall, energy and trading professionals will be able to trial electronic trading tools and test their skills on realistic trading scenarios.

The simulator will be used to provide training for working professionals involved in oil and gas trading. The simulator will deploy commercial trading software from Thomson Reuters and Trading Technologies International and will be connected to over twenty live exchange feeds, including CME Group exchanges and NYSE.

Initial course offerings include oil, natural gas and electric trading strategies and simulations. More from www.oilit.com/links/1107_9.
